Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight:

:00:00.:00:11.

Growing demand but are some people using foodbanks because they can't

:00:11.:00:18.

manage their money? There are people that come to be

:00:18.:00:24.

foodbank that generally can help their situation and they are just

:00:24.:00:28.

choosing not to. I'm at Lincoln Crown Court where a

:00:28.:00:31.

teenage girl has been charged with the murder of her newborn baby.

:00:31.:00:35.

The MA student banned from the army because of his tattoos. I thought

:00:36.:00:44.

perhaps logic would come into play, I am not a 16—year—old and has

:00:44.:00:48.

applied on a whim. Bringing the Ashes home to inspire

:00:48.:00:54.

the next generation of cricketers. If we keep having successful

:00:54.:00:57.

national teams, the men all the women, that will push the amount of

:00:57.:01:05.

people buying push it —— cricket. And the weather forecast late.

:01:05.:01:12.

To some they are seen as an essential lifeline but there are

:01:12.:01:17.

claims tonight that foodbanks are actually just propping up families

:01:17.:01:23.

who can't budget properly. The comments come from the Education

:01:23.:01:26.

Secretary Michael Gove and have prompted an angry response from the

:01:26.:01:29.

Bishop of Hull, a city where more than 100 charities are involved in

:01:29.:01:36.

handing out food. However, there has been some unlikely support for Mr

:01:36.:01:39.

Gove from people working at foodbanks. In a moment we'll be

:01:39.:01:44.

hearing from the Bishop, but first, Phil Connell has this report.

:01:44.:01:52.

The free food hand—outs very here everyday, one thing that is certain

:01:52.:01:56.

is that by the end of the week, most of it will have gone. The whole

:01:56.:02:01.

foodbank —— the whole foodbank has said it has never been so busy. When

:02:01.:02:11.

they come to our door there is a lot of pride and embarrassment and they

:02:11.:02:14.

feel quite scared and it is a deer in the headlights look because they

:02:14.:02:20.

don't know what will happen. In the Commons, the free food parcels have

:02:20.:02:24.

caused a political storm. With the education secretary stating that

:02:24.:02:28.

owns —— those that are receiving them are only themselves to blame.

:02:28.:02:35.

It is a result of decisions made by families that mean they are not able

:02:35.:02:38.

to manage their finances. When need to do —— what we need to do is to

:02:38.:02:42.

make sure the supporters and their not just financially but that the

:02:42.:02:46.

right decisions are made. Here, where 100 charities supplying food

:02:46.:02:52.

his comments are being condemned. In the two years it has been open the

:02:52.:02:58.

hull foodbank has donated 30 tonnes of food. It has fed 2000 hundred 49

:02:58.:03:04.

people last year. Since April last year, the figure has already ——

:03:04.:03:08.

since April this year, 2000 people have already come. Kimberly is now a

:03:08.:03:13.

volunteer at the foodbank but this time last year she was living in a

:03:14.:03:18.

tent and receiving food parcels. She thinks that Michael Gove may have a

:03:18.:03:23.

valid point but says he could have expressed better. With him saying

:03:23.:03:27.

what he is saying it could stop people coming because it could make

:03:27.:03:32.

those people feel as though it is their fault where in some cases it

:03:32.:03:36.

is not. There are people that come to be foodbank that generally can

:03:36.:03:45.

help their situation and they just don't, they choose not to. This

:03:45.:03:48.

foodbank helps around 100 people per week in the city. A debate now

:03:48.:03:53.

ignited over their genuine need or whether their own bad decisions have

:03:53.:03:57.

been to blame. Earlier I spoke to the Bishop of

:03:57.:04:01.

Hull and asked him if people who use food banks are responsible for their

:04:01.:04:09.

own situation. No, not really, I think there is a real danger of

:04:09.:04:13.

getting into a situation where poor people are being blamed for their

:04:13.:04:17.

own poverty, that is simply not fair. What you make of Michael

:04:17.:04:22.

Gove's comments? Issey out of touch? Yes. Poor people are being blamed

:04:22.:04:29.

when there are other factors. He is making the point that people are

:04:29.:04:33.

needing to work within their means and not rely on hand—outs, is

:04:33.:04:36.

because people have heard about them and media. When people have no

:04:36.:04:42.

margin of error at all, inevitably when things go wrong in whatever

:04:42.:04:46.

way, they are bound to be up against it and very quickly get into debt

:04:46.:04:51.

and get into really serious need and it is often a foodbank that can tide

:04:51.:04:56.

them over. You have seen the number of people using foodbanks increase,

:04:56.:04:59.

while you think that it is? Because there is an increasing need and I

:04:59.:05:07.

think that with the welfare pawns, the —— welfare reforms, the need

:05:07.:05:08.

will increase. People would still be surprised that a bishop is speaking

:05:08.:05:17.

up politically. Does not up politically. Does not party

:05:17.:05:19.

political, it is part of our care for our neighbour. When we see our

:05:19.:05:25.

neighbour in real need it is very important that we do what we can. A

:05:25.:05:31.

text that I had during the week, I wonder how many people we see at the

:05:31.:05:34.

foodbanks with a giant plasma TV, harsh! That is a perception. I heard

:05:34.:05:43.

the chief executive of the Joseph Rowntree foundation speaking this

:05:43.:05:48.

week saying they have done extensive research and almost all the people

:05:48.:05:51.

using foodbanks at doing so because of crisis, real need, because they

:05:51.:05:56.

have hit on hard time. Nothing to do with luxuries at all. If that is the

:05:56.:06:00.

case, then depressing? Very depressing indeed. Let us know what

:06:00.:06:07.

you think about this story. Should people on low incomes have more

:06:07.:06:10.

discipline when it comes to their budget? Is Michael Gove right? May

:06:10.:06:24.

be a user foodbank or maybe you are offended by the comments you have

:06:24.:06:25.

heard. Please contact us. In a moment, how a harsh winter

:06:25.:06:48.

could threaten the supply of sloe gin this Christmas.

:06:48.:06:57.

A 16—year—old girl has appeared in court charged with the murder of her

:06:57.:07:02.

newborn baby. The girl, who can't be named for legal reasons, is from the

:07:02.:07:07.

village of Baston in Lincolnshire. Our reporter Leanne Brown is outside

:07:07.:07:11.

the court for us tonight, what more can you tell us about this case?

:07:11.:07:17.

The body of a newborn baby was found by the emergency services last week

:07:18.:07:21.

at a property in the village of Baston, near Bourne. The baby's

:07:21.:07:30.

16—year—old mother, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was

:07:30.:07:37.

charged last night with his murder. She appeared before magistrates in

:07:37.:07:40.

Grantham this morning where she was accused of the murder between the

:07:40.:07:47.

second and 6th of September. Too serious to be dealt with by a

:07:47.:07:50.

magistrate, the case was automatically sent here to the Crown

:07:50.:07:53.

Court in Lincoln where this afternoon she appeared, dressed in

:07:53.:07:56.

black and accompanied by a family member. The judge remanded the

:07:56.:08:13.

teenager into the care of the local authority with conditions including

:08:13.:08:21.

health investigators are court appearance set for

:08:21.:08:36.

health investigators are investigating infection from a

:08:36.:08:40.

children's play park, a water park. The park was closed after 18 people

:08:40.:08:45.

fell ill with cryptosporidium infection. People that went to the

:08:45.:08:53.

park in July need to complete an online questionnaire even if they

:08:53.:09:01.

were not ill. They're seen as a way of expressing yourself but these

:09:01.:09:04.

tattoos are stopping one man from Hull from getting a job. James

:09:04.:09:08.

Hastie has a degree and wants to join the Army but he's been told his

:09:08.:09:11.

tattoos are inappropriate. Caroline Bilton reports.

:09:11.:09:14.

James Hastie wants to join the Army — he's spent the past few months

:09:14.:09:17.

going through the application process but he's been told he won't

:09:17.:09:24.

be accepted because of his tattoos. I thought that perhaps logic would

:09:24.:09:28.

come into play, I am not a 16—year—old that has decided on a

:09:28.:09:32.

whim to join the Army. I have done a lot of things and I thought that

:09:32.:09:36.

would get taken into account, the fact that I have got an education

:09:36.:09:40.

behind me would be a benefit. The MOD sent him an email explaining why

:09:40.:09:43.

he wasn't eligible. It said it's because of army policy about tattoos

:09:43.:09:47.

which "would be detrimental to the service." It refers to any tattoos,

:09:47.:09:50.

excessive in size or number, offensive or obscene, which are

:09:50.:09:51.

visible when wearing parade uniform. is is about if those tattoos are

:09:51.:11:02.

visible and in a park and inappropriate. Tonight the Ministry

:11:02.:11:09.

of Defence said that James should visit his army careers office again

:11:09.:11:13.

to discuss the decision. This is another story we'd like your

:11:13.:11:18.

views on. Is it right that someone should be barred from a job with the

:11:18.:11:22.

army, or any job, if they have visible tattoos? Start the text with

:11:22.:11:38.

Look North. Thank you for watching tonight. Still ahead tonight:

:11:38.:11:40.

England's Arran Brindle bring the Ashes back to Louth. It is quite

:11:41.:11:52.

amazing, to see the Ashes brought to us. Is really good they have won it.

:11:52.:12:04.

Banks of Humber taken from Barton by Jonathan Boddy.

:12:04.:12:19.

I know what you have done there! And he was going to slip in a Humber

:12:19.:12:26.

Bridge picture. You have been caught red—handed. Now the weather

:12:26.:12:34.

forecast. We would just have the forecast! Let's look at the headline

:12:34.:12:41.

for the next 24 hours, it is important that you take note of this

:12:42.:12:45.

because Saturday will be far better than Sunday a gap stars but Saturday

:12:45.:12:52.

will brighten up —— a gap start. Sunday, it is wet and windy, a poor

:12:52.:12:58.

day to come on Sunday. A real test of autumn temperatures in the mid

:12:58.:13:02.

teens. For those meteorological minded people like myself, it is a

:13:02.:13:07.

synoptic chart on a ridge of high pressure, look at this on Sunday,

:13:07.:13:10.

and whether Brian —— a weather front with tightly packed isobars which

:13:10.:13:19.

means strong winds. A gap and dreary evening, a lot of surface spray on

:13:19.:13:23.

the roads. The rain will continue overnight, on and off. Showing signs

:13:23.:13:28.

of easing from the North later but it is a miserable September night,

:13:28.:13:33.

with the dim —— with temperatures up to ten or 11 Celsius. 50 Fahrenheit.

:13:33.:13:38.

The sun will rise in the morning at 6:32am. Your next high will be just

:13:38.:13:44.

after midnight tonight at Cleethorpes. Many of us are off to a

:13:44.:13:51.

grey start. Patches of rain slipping away southwards. Bright in

:13:51.:13:59.

north—east Yorkshire. A nice afternoon on Saturday, sunny spells

:13:59.:14:03.

and the small chance of catching a light shower. After the jury start,

:14:03.:14:12.

but in the afternoon. 15 Celsius is 59 Fahrenheit. Next week looks cool,

:14:12.:14:20.

showery, unsettled. That is the forecast!

:14:20.:14:28.

Is so easy with the other one. I try not to dumb down the audience. It is

:14:28.:14:32.

a bit late for that. A senior Conservative in

:14:32.:14:41.

Lincolnshire, who's suffering from terminal cancer, has attacked the

:14:41.:14:44.

government's decision to spend £11 billion this year on foreign aid.

:14:44.:14:47.

Chris Underwood—Frost who serves on the County Council, says the money

:14:47.:14:51.

should instead be spent on treating Cancer. But the Deputy Prime

:14:51.:14:56.

Minister Nick Clegg has told Look North that the foreign aid budget is

:14:56.:14:59.

right. Here's our Political Editor, Tim Iredale.

:14:59.:15:05.

Conservative councillor Chris Underwood frost has been fighting a

:15:05.:15:10.

15 year battle with cancer. Which started on his skin ended as now

:15:10.:15:14.

spread to his brain. He has nothing but praise for the medical staff who

:15:14.:15:19.

have treated him. He says he is angry that billions of pounds worth

:15:19.:15:23.

of tax payers money is being spent on overseas aid. Is far better that

:15:23.:15:30.

we spend any money in this country to prop up the NHS, to keep people

:15:30.:15:35.

alive and doing it. Unfortunately, I am now terminal, therefore I think

:15:35.:15:42.

that some of this overseas money should be spent here for people,

:15:42.:15:49.

especially to make sure people can be treated locally. The government

:15:49.:15:56.

is committed to spending 0.7% of our national income on overseas aid.

:15:56.:16:02.

That adds up to around about £11 billion this year. A controversial

:16:02.:16:04.

figure that has attracted controversy will criticism.

:16:04.:16:13.

can possibly give £1 billion per month when we are in debt to undergo

:16:13.:16:21.

bongo land. UKIP MP Godfrey Bloom had to defend his comments. The row

:16:21.:16:28.

reopened the debate about the government's moral duty to spend

:16:28.:16:33.

money on less fortunate parts of the world. I put the paint made by Chris

:16:33.:16:38.

Underwood frost to the Deputy Prime Minister. Can you understand why

:16:38.:16:43.

people believe the money should be spent at home when they have

:16:43.:16:47.

problems a? Of course I understand. It means that we try to help other

:16:47.:16:52.

countries dealing with grinding poverty, violence, extremism and

:16:52.:16:56.

conflict it also means that people are encouraged to stay at home

:16:56.:17:00.

rather than move across continents and borders. Is a subject that

:17:00.:17:04.

polarises opinion but despite the government's arguments, there will

:17:04.:17:10.

be many that insist that charity should begin at home.

:17:10.:17:18.

The subject of foreign aid will be one of the discussion points on this

:17:18.:17:25.

weekend's Sunday politics. We've had a big response on our story about

:17:25.:17:29.

how much money some football fans were paying to watch their teams

:17:29.:17:32.

play. A BBC report has found that the general cost of football had

:17:32.:17:36.

gone down slightly and that Hull City was one of the cheapest clubs

:17:36.:17:44.

in the Premier League to watch. Just a

:17:44.:17:53.

Maly says "I've purchased four tickets for the Hull vs West Ham

:17:53.:17:58.

match. The annoying point is I was charged a £2.50 booking fee for each

:17:58.:18:01.

ticket — rip—off Britain." Chris from Hornsea also texted in to say

:18:01.:18:05.

the cost of watching Premier League football could be reduced if clubs

:18:05.:18:08.

were allowed to introduce safe standing. And this tweet from Jodie

:18:08.:18:13.

Sippel believes it's just the latest thing people want to complain about.

:18:13.:18:17.

If it was that expensive they wouldn't pay it in the first place.

:18:17.:18:22.

Two new pilots will join the Red Arrows in 2014 — the team's 50th

:18:22.:18:26.

display season. Flight Lieutenant Stewart Campbell

:18:26.:18:34.

and Flight Lieutenant Joe Hourston have been announced as the newest

:18:34.:18:38.

members of the aerobatics team. The two pilots have both flown

:18:38.:18:41.

operations over Afghanistan and will stay with the Red Arrows for three

:18:41.:18:50.

years. It is now feeling real now being in Jersey and being in the

:18:50.:18:54.

back of a real show with crowds. Obviously getting a number last

:18:54.:18:58.

night made it feel like being a part of the team now. Exciting. We're

:18:58.:19:03.

looking forward to the challenge of the next few years. It is going to

:19:03.:19:08.

be life changing experiences, we get to visit places and meet people that

:19:08.:19:11.

we would never have the opportunity to make. Congratulations to them in

:19:11.:19:22.

the talent islands —— challenge violent —— Channel Islands.

:19:22.:19:25.

It's a symbol of cricketing excellence and today school children

:19:25.:19:28.

in Louth saw close—up the Women's Ashes trophy. Arran Brindle, who was

:19:28.:19:32.

part of the side which beat Australia this summer, brought the

:19:32.:19:35.

trophy to her home town. As our sports reporter Simon Clark

:19:35.:19:38.

explains, more and more girls are now playing the game.

:19:38.:19:41.

It is one of women's crickets top prizes. It is a privilege to bring

:19:41.:19:51.

the Ashes trophy here. The Ashes were shown off to school children in

:19:51.:19:57.

Louth. They were suitably impressed. It is quite amazing to see the Ashes

:19:57.:20:01.

right there. Really good they have won it. Aaron was at the non—striker

:20:01.:20:09.

's end when the showings were beaten in front of a huge crowd. The

:20:09.:20:12.

women's Ashes caught the public imagination. They have tennis fever

:20:12.:20:20.

when Wimbledon is on, and cricket, especially when the showings around.

:20:20.:20:25.

Cricket has generally grown and if we have successful national teams of

:20:25.:20:30.

men and women, that will push the matter people playing cricket.

:20:30.:20:33.

Thanks to the talents of the women's team, the growth of the girls in the

:20:33.:20:41.

women's game has been phenomenal. Nowhere is that more evident then in

:20:41.:20:50.

Hull and East Yorkshire. I am seeing a 30% increase. A lot of the

:20:50.:20:56.

are attending the local clubs expressing interest to play. We're

:20:56.:20:59.

going to support them through that. We have now got the right mechanisms

:20:59.:21:04.

in place. The growth is extraordinary. In 1998, England

:21:04.:21:09.

women warmed up under England was like under 16 boys are in front of a

:21:09.:21:15.

handful of enthusiast. By 2013, the game against Pakistan attracted 2000

:21:15.:21:20.

fans. We have a close working relationship with the ECB for Dell

:21:20.:21:25.

support, not forgetting the man we are fully supportive of that. I

:21:25.:21:30.

personally believe that everyone should have the opportunity, that I

:21:30.:21:35.

did not have many years ago. Thanks to a talented player from Louth,

:21:35.:21:42.

women's cricket is in good health. Hull FC can book their place in

:21:42.:21:45.

Super League's Preliminary semi finals tonight if they win. The

:21:45.:21:48.

Black and White's face the Catalan Dragons and Coach Peter Gentle says

:21:49.:21:52.

playing at home will give his side a slight advantage. They have had a

:21:52.:21:57.

month of footy where they have played four of the top five sides in

:21:58.:22:01.

the competition and being very competitive in the competition. They

:22:01.:22:08.

are matched Harden —— match hardened. We are playing at home

:22:08.:22:12.

which is fortunate. It means our preparation will not be disrupted.

:22:12.:22:15.

It is going to be a tough game. And you can hear full commentary of that

:22:15.:22:19.

game on BBC Radio Humberside from eight o'clock tonight. That's on AM,

:22:19.:22:24.

digital and online. In the other play—off game affecting

:22:24.:22:28.

:22:28.:22:35.

Kick—off is at 5pm. Commentary is on BBC Radio Humberside, on the FM

:22:35.:22:37.

Also in the Conference, Lincoln City travel to Barnet, full match

:23:04.:23:07.

commentary on BBC Radio Lincolnshire. Enjoy the football and

:23:07.:23:19.

rugby league. Only 100 days until Christmas but if you are hoping to

:23:19.:23:25.

toast the festive season with Yorkshire sloe gym, you may have a

:23:25.:23:30.

problem. A poor harvest of berries could mean there will be a shortage.

:23:30.:23:41.

It is a typical tipple for Christmas, enjoyed with a mince

:23:41.:23:47.

pie. 80,000 bottles of Yorkshire sloe gin produced by Jonathan but

:23:47.:23:54.

his run—up to Christmas may be fraught. Towards the end of the

:23:54.:23:59.

season we will run out of slows. —— sloe. We are certainly not seeing it

:23:59.:24:07.

is a good year for us. To meet festive orders, the team are

:24:07.:24:11.

scarring east Yorkshire Fog bushes and hedges. We are trying to find

:24:11.:24:16.

anyone in the area that has quite a lot of sloe. Things have fared

:24:16.:24:24.

better this year. Orchards have bumper crops for cider. And an eagle
